    Affordable Care Act

    Affordable Care Act

    The Affordable Care Act was passed by Congress and then signed into law by the President on March 23, 2010.

    On June 28, 2012 the Supreme Court rendered a final decision to endorse the health care law.

    The Affordable Care Act is a federal statute aimed at decreasing the number of uninsured Americans and reducing the overall costs of health care. Many of its provisions significantly impact children and youth with special health care needs, a population important to the purpose of the Southeast Regional NBS & Genetics Collaborative.
